/**
 * MozRefCountType is Mozilla's reference count type.
 *
 * This is the return type for AddRef() and Release() in nsISupports.
 * IUnknown of COM returns an unsigned long from equivalent functions.
 *
 * We use the same type to represent the refcount of RefCounted objects
 * as well, in order to be able to use the leak detection facilities
 * that are implemented by XPCOM.
 *
 * The following ifdef exists to maintain binary compatibility with
 * IUnknown, the base interface in Microsoft COM.
 *
 * Note that this type is not in the mozilla namespace so that it is
 * usable for both C and C++ code.
